I’ve never seen a little bug like this before, with the most amazing gold and green irridescent shell (maybe folded wings like a ladybird?). No idea what it is so ID welcomed – it looks as though he/she is carrying a large egg-sac or is about to give multiple-birth?
Slightly smaller than a ladybird, and the brightest of irridescent gold and green colours. Like a miniature Scarab beetle!
